Many applicants are wandering if they can still apply for the reinstated SRD R350 Grant although they were declined in the previous one.
Going forward to 2023, SASSA SRD R350 GRANT applicants can still apply for reconsideration or appeal using this link https://srd.dsd.gov.za/appeals/appeal. The same link can be used to check appeal status.
According to SASSA, people’s circumstances or conditions change over time so everyone can apply.
But make sure that you meet the criteria for approval especially if you don’t receive any financial support either from the government or elsewhere.
Those who have worked before and qualify for Unemployment Insurance Fund #UIF, do not qualify to apply. If you are not sure you can contact UIF to verify your account status.
In some cases, it has emerged that unknown to some people, they qualify for UIF.
Moreover, those who have been declined for NSFAS registered or not currently funded by NSFAS can also apply.
But for NSFAS registered, SASSA advised applicants should see NSFAS to officially delete their account information from their database.
Some others too were declined on the basis that they have alternative source of income.
Others are wondering how SASSA came by this conclusion? SASSA has been accessing applicants banking accounts, if they found out that there has been monies inflows, it is suspected that, such applicants have other source of income.
It is the same way as Meanstest, a term used by SASSA to indicate an applicant does not qualify to receive SRD grant because upon further checks, they realized he or she have means to support himself or herself.
In a situation where you see “referred” on your Status, what that seems to indicate is that, SASSA is suspicious of your application and refer to the appropriate quarters for investigation. Until the investigation is completed, the application will be suspended indefinitely. You can send an email to [email protected] for sassa to investigate your complaint.
Everyone can apply for these SASSA grants online and be considered.
